Sweet story ... and all that eye candy ... and what do I do?

Jump right to the plain red and yellow patches. ^_^

(That is a gorgeous lot. I feel lucky to see them all. Thanks!)

Hey MAIN-MARBLE-MAN, what a sweet group! Looks strait out of "The Golden Age of Machinemade Marbles" (about 1927-1933) I truly believe the best machinemade marbles were made in those depression years! Great Score!

He and another old feller was telling me how they were the best marble shooters in the area (Cincinnati, Ohio) as children. I asked if he had ever had any orig. boxes of marbles, he said he was a poor kid, and poor kids couldn't afford to buy the boxes. He won all that he had. Said he hated steelies, they tore the hell out of his marbles. I could see the gleam in their eyes as they were talking back and forth telling me about their shooters, it was allmost like they were kids again.

Might I suggest that you keep this group of marbles together as they will always mean more to you this way. I have kept all my original marbles this way.

As a group my marbles are rather non-descript, but rediscovering them about 6 years ago sparked my interest in marble collecting. Although I now have many marbles more attractive and rarer than my little hoard of hard won mibs when I was 10 years old, nothing will ever eclipse my original marbles.

As a tribute to the elderly gentleman who relinquished ownership to you, I think it only fitting to keep them together. But, of course, that's your call to make.

Nice marbles!!!
